5 Benefits of Clear Aligners

Straight teeth are more than just a question of aesthetics, as straighter teeth can be easier to protect from dental health problems. However, there’s nothing shallow about caring for the aesthetics of your smile, either. Confidence in your smile can give you a big boost in your personal and professional life.

At Russell Family Dentistry of Tomball, Texas, our care team, led by Dr. Louis Russell Jr., provides a full range of orthodontic services, including orthodontic treatment using clear aligners. Available for both teens and adults, clear aligners offer significantly improved benefits over traditional forms of orthodontia like braces.

1. Invisible and discreet

If you want to improve the appearance of your smile, the visibility of traditional braces might be a real sticking point. You don’t want to have to go to work or school with a mouthful of metal for months, an experience that can be both uncomfortable and embarrassing.

When you choose mtm® clear aligners, you can effectively straighten your smile without anyone ever needing to be able to see your orthodontia. Your custom-molded aligner trays fit closely over your teeth. The revolutionary polymer material is almost impossible to see.

2. Easily removable

For important events, special occasions, and even daily meals, just remove your aligner trays and get on with your life! You can eat whatever you want when you’re using clear aligners, unlike the restrictions that come with braces. Just make sure to keep your aligners in for at least 22 hours each day to achieve your desired straightening results

3. Simple check-ins

You don’t need to come into the office all the time for tune-ups and check-ins when you’re using clear aligners, the way you might need to with braces. When you do come in for an appointment, Dr. Russell checks on your progress, answers any questions you may have, and gives you the next few sets of aligners in the series that will, over weeks and months, systematically shift and straighten your smile.

4. Technology-enhanced planning

To get you started with your clear aligners, Dr. Russell and his team first use cutting-edge computer technology to scan and model your mouth, your jaw, and all of your teeth. With visualization technology, Dr. Russell can chart the ideal course to control the movement of each of your individual teeth.

5. Quicker results

Whether you have an underbite, an overbite, wide spacing, or crowding, clear aligners can deliver results within just 6-12 months. You’ll be done with your treatment before you know it.
